Muscular Dominant Big Stuff
Bin 642 Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
I selected the biggest ripest wine I was offered. You have plenty of Cabernets from Margaret River, Coonawarra and the Yarra Valley being offered or already in your cellar but you do not have a Cabernet like this. As expressed many times I am not a believer in the idea that each variety reaches it maximum point of perfection when grown in just this ‘climate’.
For one it’s the weather which is the reason and very few vineyard regions have stable weather patterns and the cooler the weather often the more variable the pattern. The vines are not bee hives which can be moved to take advantage of the season. You should not drink a wine such as this all that often but you do need a crate in a good cellar.
